James Maddock – Bad Night

song of the week!

I’ve recently (finally!) started watching the brilliant FX show Louie, which happens to be written, directed by and starring one of my favourite people in the world, Louis CK. I marathoned season 1 and at the end of the final episode, this great song came on that I just had to share.

Apparently everyone was asking Louie what it was since the credits don’t list it and it doesn’t register on Shazaam, so he was kind enough to post it. Turns out Louie wrote the lyrics himself, and got local NYC musician James Maddock to perform it in the recording. It’s basically the perfect encapsulation of how it feels to have a really shitty night.

James Maddock has a beautiful raspy voice that allows for the requisite empathy the track requires.

Giveaway – Tracks Novel and Movie Tickets

tracksmovie

Another awesome giveaway care of my friends over at Mongrel Media, for their new film Tracks which recently opened in Toronto. Any movie starring Adam Driver is a movie I highly recommend. Also, as a constant wanderluster, I absolutely adore this story because I have always dreamed of doing what this girl did. Traveling on your own is one of the best ways to see what you are made of.

Here’s what is up for grabs:

3x 1 copy of the novel the film is based on and 1 pass for 2 people to see the film in theaters.

3x 1 pass for two people to see the film in theaters.
